McCain coming to Ohio

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., just announced that he'll be spending the congressional recess month of August campaigning in Iowa, Louisiana, Virginia, South Carolina and Ohio.

Details of his travels will be posted on his Web site: http://www.straighttalkamerica.com/.

Ohioans will be getting three days with the veteran and former presidential candidate. He'll be here campaigning for Sen. Mike DeWine, a Cedarville Republican, from Sunday, Aug. 20, to the morning of Tuesday, Aug. 22. DeWine faces Rep. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat.

DeWine's campaign said the travel schedule for those three days is still being worked out, but that the two senators would be doing some fundraisers and campaign events together in various cities across the state.

However, considering all the grief DeWine got from Ohio conservatives for his participation in the bipartisan Gang of 14 (pictured above), which brokered a deal to bar a judicial filibuster except in extreme circumstances, it's unclear how much help another Republican member of that gang will bring his campaign...

No matter. We'll let you know if McCain will be headed to Cincinnati.

Do you mean the swift boat, shell shocked Mc okeCain is now stable enough to represent the wRong wingnut whackos ??

Or, are they admitting da da da whine is just as goofy ??

A RINO supporting a RINO. How nice. Both should be banned. Too bad the Republicans didn't defeat De(s)Wine in the primary. Now Ohio is left with a choice of a Left Wing Republican in Name Only, or a Left Wing nutjob.
